Teaser Thursday ~ Pippa Morgan’s Diary

Teaser Thursday ~ Pippa Morgan’s Diary


I had random.org select a page today, and eventually I picked one from the 4 it selected, namely page 68.

But nothing is normal now. I’m in the middle of the biggest lie I ever told. If my Fairy Godmother appeared right now and granted me a gazillion wishes, a talent show is the last thing I’d wish for. Why can’t I have a Fairy Godmother?

Today is 8-11, so I turned that around and picked a fun teaser from page 118.

‘Ladies and gentlemen! Dad called over the chitter-chatter.
‘And tooth fairieth!’ the Molar Sisters piped up.
‘And impolumps!’
‘And werepoodles!’
‘EVERYONE!’ Dad yelled, cutting off the rest of the crowd before anyone else could join in. ‘It is with happiness in my haunches and armfuls of Trogmanay cheer that I’d like to welcome you all to our summery… ermm… wintery trog-hog feats.’

Teaser Thursday ~ The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl – 2 Fuzzy, 2 Furious


I let Random.org pick one, though it took a few tries (he kept selecting pages with spoilers), in the end I settled on 208/209.

“WORKER UNKNOWN,” the voice continued. “STATE YOUR SECURITY-AUTHORIZED NAME.”
Something mechanical within the walls made a clunking noise, and a panel slid open. A weapon-looking thing extended through the hole.
“PROVIDE YOUR SECURITY-AUTHORIZED NAME WITHIN FIVE SECONDS OR BE DESTROYED,” the voice commanded.
My teeth clenched. I do not take kindly to threats of destruction.
“My name is Tippy-Toe,” I said. I scampered up the wall to perch on the barrels. “And my authorization is JUSTICE!”
I bit through the housing at the base of the barrel and tore it from the wall.
“‘CHK-CHKKA-CHT’ IS NOT A SECURITY AUTHORIZED NAME,” the voice continued. ‘YOU WILL NOW BE DESTROYED.”
Three more panels opened, revealing new weapons.

Teaser Thursday ~ The Backstagers and the Ghost Light

Teaser Thursday ~ The Backstagers and the Ghost Light


I let my fiance pick at first, but then I picked one when his % didn’t have fun/exciting passages. This is from 47%.

In the center of the clearing, beneath the black sky, sat an even darker figure, hooded, surrounded by a circle of half-melted white candles. Before it lay a strange collection of mysterious-looking materials. There was an altar of some kind with a bowl of a pungent herbal mixture burning on it, its smoke curling into the air in ghostly tendrils. The figure looked up from the altar, straight at Jory. It stood. Jory screamed his lungs out and took off in the other direction. The figure gave chase.

Teaser Thursday ~ The Dark Beneath the Ice

I first had random.org select a %, but since that didn’t work I went on a quest myself, and I selected 47%.

And as I watch, lines drip through it, forming unsteady letters.
THIS IS MINE
MARIANNE
I snatch a washcloth from its hanger beside the sink and scrub the words from the glass, but I can’t erase them from my mind. I can’t erase the certainty sinking in my throat.
Whatever it was I saw last night – it saw me too.

Teaser Thursday ~ Swamp Monster

Teaser Thursday ~ Swamp Monster


This time I decided to pick a % myself, and I thought 66% would be nice!

A cry of bewildered pain came from the swamp monster. Blood and fury. The Others had escaped. Now the creature stood – raging, crazed, furious- inside the bedroom of Chance and Lance LaRue. Comic books scattered on the floor. Posters of Dallas Cowboys on the walls.

Teaser Thursday ~ The Darkdeep

Teaser Thursday ~ The Darkdeep


I let random.org select a %. It selected 32%.

Never come back. Opal didn’t know if she could do that. The island was eerie and dangerous, but also fascinating. She’d never been so creeped out or felt so alive. And if what Emma said is true…

Teaser Thursday ~ Oliver and the Seawigs

Teaser Thursday ~ Oliver and the Seawigs


I let my fiance pick a page and, after some thinking, he decided on page 88.

He led the monkeys there and watched them pour in the pool. They were as happy underwater as above it. They crouched in the shadows of the pool and looked up at Stacey with wicked, wary eyes. “I am your master!” he said proudly.

Teaser Thursday ~ Wish for a Witch

Teaser Thursday ~ Wish for a Witch


I had Random.org select a page number and it decided on page 130.

Small lizard-like creatures peered from the shadows of false logs and clumps of grass. Salamanders, maybe, or perhaps basilisks? Sylphine had heard the names but wasn’t sure which was which or even if they were remotely alike. Anyway, they were a bit dull and clearly only there to make up the numbers.
